Victoria Beckham Says That Spice Girls Reunion Tour Is *Not* Happening

We'd like Victoria Beckham to stop crushing our dreams on such a consistent basis. The fashion designer and former pop singer squashed rumors that have been circling the media ever since last week that the Spice Girls were going on tour. According to Victoria, not ONLY will she not be going on said tour, but also apparently the Spice Girls are not going on a reunion tour at all. The former bandmates reunited last week but that doesn't mean that a tour is actually on the books for any of them.

Last week, Victoria shared two photos on her Instagram account for her 18.8 million followers to enjoy. She had reunited with her fellow Spice Girls, Mel B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell (better known to us all as Scary Spice, Sporty Spice, Baby Spice, and Ginger Spice). She shared the first photo with the caption, “Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x #friendshipneverends #girlpower” and shortly followed up with a second photo, with the caption, “Love u all so much!!! X Such a great day!! Thank u Simon! X VB.” As soon as the photos hit the internet, rumors were ablaze that the Spice Girls were reuniting. TMZ even shared an article confirming that the Spice Girls were going on a world tour. But it looks like everyone spoke too soon, as Victoria cleared things up when speaking with Vogue.

While promoting her ready-to-wear fall 2018 fashion line at New York Fashion Week, Victoria finally shut down those girl group reunion tour rumors – but also said that doesn't entirely mean they aren't going to give their fans something to look forward to. Victoria told Vogue that they're trying to get something in the works again.

“I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” Victoria stated. But she followed up the heartbreaking statement by saying, “It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely. There’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming.”

“It’s a positive thing. You know, there’s so much bad stuff going on, and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality,” Posh Spice added. “I think there’s so much that the brand can do, and it’s such a positive message for young kids.”

Spice Girls publicist Jo Milloy confirmed that the group is planning something together in a statement saying that “the time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.”

I guess we're all just patiently awaiting news about whatever these future “opportunities” may be. Not going to lie, we're bummed about the tour though!
